Conformational Reorganization of Apolipoprotein E Triggered by Phospholipid Assembly.

J Phys Chem B 2021 May 12. Epub 2021 May 12.

Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Center for Interdisciplinary Sciences, Hyderabad 500107, India.

Apolipoprotein E (apoE), a major determinant protein for lipid metabolism, actively participates in lipid transport in the central nervous system via high-affinity interaction with the low-density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR). Prior evidences indicate that the phospholipids first need to assemble around apoE before the protein can recognize its receptor. However, despite multiple attempts via spectroscopic and biochemical investigations, it is unclear what are the impacts of lipid assembly on the globular structure of apoE. Read More

Cortisol levels in blood and hair of unanesthetized grizzly bears (Ursus arctos) following intravenous cosyntropin injection.

Vet Med Sci 2021 May 12. Epub 2021 May 12.

fRI Research, Hinton, AB, Canada.

Hair cortisol concentration (HCC) is being used increasingly to evaluate long-term stress in many mammalian species. Most of the cortisol is assumed to passively diffuse from circulating blood into hair follicles and gradually accumulate in growing hair. However, our research with free-ranging grizzly bears (Ursus arctos) suggests HCC increases significantly within several hours following capture, a time too brief to be explained by this mechanism alone.

Inhibitory control in children with tic disorder: aberrant fronto-parietal network activity and connectivity.

Brain Commun 2021 9;3(2):fcab067. Epub 2021 Apr 9.

Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior, University of California, Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA 90095, USA.

Chronic tic disorders, including Tourette syndrome, are typically thought to have deficits in cognitive inhibition and top down cognitive control due to the frequent and repetitive occurrence of tics, yet studies reporting task performance results have been equivocal. Despite similar behavioural performance, individuals with chronic tic disorder have exhibited aberrant patterns of neural activation in multiple frontal and parietal regions relative to healthy controls during inhibitory control paradigms. In addition to these top down attentional control regions, widespread alterations in brain activity across multiple neural networks have been reported. Read More

Disparity in Context: Understanding how monocular image content interacts with disparity processing in human visual cortex.

Neuroimage 2021 May 5:118139. Epub 2021 May 5.

Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute, 290 Jane Stanford Way, Stanford, CA 94305. Electronic address:

Horizontal disparities between the two eyes' retinal images are the primary cue for depth. Commonly used Random dot stereograms (RDS) intentionally camouflage the disparity cue, breaking the correlations between monocular image structure and the depth map that are present in natural images. Because of the nonlinear nature of visual processing, it is unlikely that simple computational rules derived from RDS will be sufficient to explain binocular vision in natural environments.

Lifetime Data Anal 2021 May 8. Epub 2021 May 8.

Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics, Rollins School of Public Health, Emory University, Atlanta, GA, 30322, USA.

Recurrent events often arise in follow-up studies where a subject may experience multiple occurrences of the same type of event. Most regression models for recurrent events consider the time scale measured from the study origin and assume constant effects of covariates. In many applications, however, gap times between recurrent events are of natural interest and moreover the effects may actually vary over time. Read More
